Is your the foundation of your lake home sinking or settling due to soil movement? In homes that sit on sandy soil, erosion might occur, washing away soil under the foundation. If this happens, voids might form underneath the foundation, lacking the support to keep it stable and causing it to sink or crack. This is a common issue in lake homes due to the prevalence of sandy or silt-heavy soil that commonly surround lakes. The following structural problems are often the result of soil movement and foundation settlement:
To repair these problems, we utilize high-quality foundation underpinning products. These products - durable steel piers or helical piers - are installed deep underground until they reach solid soil layers beneath the sandy surface. The piers are then hydraulically lifted to support and raise the above foundation.
If your home has a crawlspace, we can take care of issues there as well. Water leakage in lake homes can lead to problems such as rusting or wood rot, which cause structural damage, as well as mold growth, which lowers the air quality.
To fix these problems, we offer crawlspace support solutions such as crawlspace piers, floor supports, and floor joist repair. We offer crawlspace encapsulation to lock out moisture. This involves the installation of a vapor barrier along the interior of the crawlspace to ensure moisture does not enter the area. We can even get rid of crawlspace mold using mold soda blasting, highly pressurized baking soda that cleans surfaces and removes mold.
Perhaps you have a basement in your lake home. If so, you have probably dealt with basement moisture issues at some point. Our team provides a range of basement waterproofing services to keep water from seeping into your foundation and damaging furniture or possessions stored in your basement. To remove water from your basement, invest in our interior waterproofing services complete with sump pump installation. To keep water from getting inside, we offer exterior waterproofing and surface drainage with French drain systems.
In addition to the services listed above, we offer polyjacking to lift foundations, crack repair to fix all sorts of cracks in your home, and concrete repair for issues with your slab.
